Join Christine Jowers (Editor-in-Chief, The Dance Enthusiast) in welcoming Lucija Stojevic, (director-producer of La Chana) and David Leventhal (founding teacher/Program Director for Dance for PD®, a collaborative program of the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group) for an intimate discussion about dance as a force for empowerment.
See film clips from Stojevic's upcoming documentary, La Chana, which tells the story of Antonia Santiago Amador (La Chana), a brilliant, self-taught flamenco dancer who, after thirty years, resumed her career in triumph over victimization and physical limitation.
The evening includes a performance by flamenco dancers Sonia Olla and Ismael de la Ros Fernandez and food by Chef Babo.
6:15pm -- first course of food, drinks, socializing
7pm -- flamenco performance and conversation
followed by second course of food and mingling
